Catalog your books, movies, music, video games, gadgets, and more. Delicious Library helps you create a comprehensive inventory, share it with friends, and get holistic recommendations based on your collector profile.
Scanning is easy: simply hold barcodes up to your webcam, and items appears on your digital shelves in gorgeous 3D. Rate your items, loan them out, or just revel in the in-depth information automatically downloaded for each one.
Know what you own and discover more things you love: Delicious Library integrates your wishlist, ratings, and friends to generate smart recommendations. If your friend owns a recommended item, Delicious Library highlights it so you can hit them up for a loan.
Archive your life: view your physical collection side by side with your iTunes collection. Publish your collection to the web with one click, put used items up for sale in three clicks, and find out if anything you own happens to be worth serious bucks.

“The best of the home inventory managers I tested.” —Farhad Manjoo, New York Times
This update — unfortunately — removes the now-inoperative interface for Amazon domains except the United States and Canada. On October 25, Amazon UK, France, Spain, and Italy joined Japan and Germany in closing Delicious Monster's Associate accounts. Therefore searching, lookups (retrieving detailed product information), and selling items in those stores is no longer possible. We’re extremely sorry we can no longer offer this service.
We’ve also fixed a longstanding bug where in some places (eg, lists) item covers would initially draw empty, then draw their contents, then draw empty again, and then finally draw their contents for good, a new bug from High Sierra where item covers in the right sidebar would do a strange little dance of getting wider and skinnier and moving out of sync when the right sidebar was resized by the user, and a new bug from HIgh Sierra where reszing sidebars was unnecessarily laggy and slow.
Finally, we have restored localizations that were lost in 3.7 due to unexpected changes in macOS High Sierra.

Great library app - I have tons of books, movies, & music. I have moved three times in the last 5 years. This app is the only way I have any idea what I own or where it is. It’s also pretty and fun to organize but if you’re one of those anti-skeumorphic people, you’ll probably hate the wooden bookshelves. It is easy to add titles to the collection, although I’m really glad they added the iPhone app because I don’t need to haul my titles to the computer anymore. I’ve found pairing my iPhone relatively easy but I have had trouble re-connecting after I’ve disconnected. I end up deleting the pairing and starting over. There are some issues with this app, largely due to the fact that it’s supported by a three-person shop. The help and instruction documentation is rudimentary to say the least so a lot of useful features can be undiscovered. I don’t particularly want my entire library on my phone but I would really like a searchable title/author list so I can avoid re-buying the same title.
disappointing, version 3 is a step backwards - I used version 2 quite a bit and looked forward to the next version. Unfirtunately, it is a step backwards in terms of the functionality that I use. I find none of the new "features" to be useful and soemthign sdon't work as well. Scanning of bar codes is less robust. Sorting is unnatural and difficult to customize. And I haven't found a way to manually add an entry by typing in the ISBN number if the scan fails. The iPhone app is useless for me. All it does is turn the iPhen into a wirelss camera. WHy not allow capture ont he phen even when disconneted and then uplaod to my Mac at a later time? And why isn't there a mechainsm to synchronize a copy of my library between my Mac and iPhone?. maybe with the library database synced through a service like Drop Box. I am not interested in the the retail or current price, or in ordering items through this app. I just want to track an inventory in a portable fashion. I'm giving up on this app and going back to using simple text lists

I LOVE THIS APP - I haven't had any problems with this app. I use it to catalog 800+ movies. The mobile app turns your iPhone into a scanner which is great. Sometimes it doesn't identify some older movies. It would be great if the mobile app did more than just scan so you could take your library on the go. I mean as in having a mobile library list. I’m sure the monsters at Delicious Library will get around to even more great features. I’ve used the app to keep up with my chogokin collection. Keep up the good work guys. Looking forward to more.
You can use this program to transfer a list to your iPhone or iPad - This is a terrific cataloging program, with a pioneering interface. I like to keep a list of my music and books to iPhone or iPad. Use the “Export to …” menu in Delicious Library. Select “Another application ..” which allows export to a CSV file compatible with Numbers. Select the fields you want in your list (e.g. Creator, Title, Publisher). This spreadsheet can be transferred to your portable device via iCloud or Files app. It’s easy to search it from the Numbers app when you are shopping. (The spreadsheet doesn’t automatically re-sync with Delicious Library, but if you export and replace your list every now and then, for example before a shopping trip, it works well).
